Chapter 9. Pictures > Picture preview options

Picture preview options

Every EPS picture has a PICT or TIFF preview built into it (unless it's specifically saved without one) so you can see it on screen or print it on a non-PostScript printer. The higher a picture preview's bit depth, the longer it may take to render on screen and the larger will be the file storage size of the document into which it's imported. Choose display options for imported TIFF pictures in Edit > Preferences > Preferences > Application– Display (see page 381). In some applications (e.g., Photoshop, Illustrator) you can choose a bit depth for the preview. When you save an image for export to QuarkXPress, save it with a preview, if that option is available. An EPS picture that doesn't have a built-in preview will appear as a gray box in QuarkXPress, but it will print normally.

Looks like Greek to you

To speed up screen redraw, check Greek Pictures in Edit > Preferences > Preferences > Document–General (Cmd-Y/Ctrl-Y). Greeked pictures look solid gray on screen at some view sizes, but they print normally. To display a greeked picture, just click on it.
